2019 All-Catamaran Rendezvous Event in The Bahamas

Catamaran Guru™ Rendezvous in the abacos for 2019

May 26-29, 2019 | The Abacos

If you missed the inaugural All-Catamaran Rendezvous last year, you won't want to miss this one! All catamaran sailors (owners and experienced charterers) are welcome to celebrate our shared passion for the unique lifestyle. Last year's event drew 30 cats and more than 100 people and a lot of wild times! 

All catamaran brands, sizes, and owners are welcome! This is not a brand-specific event.

Sailing, Sunning, & Sillies

We are planning all sorts of activities, parties, and dinners during the event to encourage making new sailing friends and just thaving a good time. There will be a fun regatta (we had a few first-time racers last year so don't be shy to join in!). We will also have plenty of adult beverages, beach games, lots of swag like shirts, hats, bags, coozies and more!

We will change locales almost every day to take in The Abacos' calm water and awe-inspiring scenic beauty. We will cover only a small portion of the 120-mile–long island chain, but if you have never been, you will find out why it is called a sailor's paradise. There is plenty to explore ashore as well in the charming colonial towns such as Hope Town and on Green Turtle Cay and Elbow Cay. Check out last year's Catamaran Guru™ Rendezvous.

The Hope Town Yacht Club will once again set a course for our “Race”, that while the competitive among us took quite seriously, in the end, it was all about enjoying the breezes and enjoying the comraderie. As with last year, with so many different makes and models of catamarans, it is different from any other sailing race you will ever witness or be a part of!

Our theme for this year is “GURU JUNKANOO” Bright colors, feathers, sequins, beads…the sky is the limit for our dress up party and boat decorating! The Rumbrella Race will also have a repeat performance, so get those floating devices ready. More details to come.

Rendezvous is all about having fun and enjoying our catamaran community. We will have 2 seminars for you to sign up for. Topics this year will be Spinnaker Training and Energy Management on Board (including solar panels and batteries).

Giving Back to Young Sailors

In addition to having tons of fun, we also support the sailing community in the islands of the Abacos. As last year, we will donate a portion of the Rendezvous proceeds to Hope Town Yacht Club's junior sailing programs. This sailing program helps promote junior sailing programs and summer camps in the Abacos, Bahamas. This worthy cause operates exclusively from donations and volunteers. We are excited to support them again promoting the next generation of sailors and those desiring the sailing lifestyle. During the Rendezvous, you will have the opportunity to participate ina raffle with fabulous prizes to raise even more money for this the junior sailors in Hope Town.

Learn During the Rendezvous

Spinnaker Training Class

Want to learn how to fly your Spinnaker or Asymetrical sail effectively? During our on-the-water workshop like in the video at right, you will get up-close, hands-on guidance. If you are interested in learning how to hoist, douse and set this sail on a catamaran, sign up below and reserve your spot on one of the three boats.

Energy Management on Board Seminar

As our cruising cats have more creature comforts like A/C, electronics, and big refrigerators, demand increases for power using technologies like solar panels and batteries. Learn how to use the latest technologies to power your boat efficiently and effectively.

Registration Fees: US$250/ boat plus $120/person. A $100 deposit secures your spot. Contact estelle@catamaranguru.com for more information.
